White Ribbon Event Thank You

White Ribbon Event Thank You

A big thank you to all the women who supported Wednesday’s White Ribbon day event here at Whist … The event followed the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25th November and is part of 16 days of action drawing attention to the worldwide issue of male violence against women.  Our event aimed to raise awareness of domestic violence in the UK and to hear women’s voices.  Whist members put together wonderful displays, went out into the community, engaged people in discussion, sold white ribbons, wrote their stories, stood up and read out different women’s experiences, cooked lovely food, helped organise things –  and washed up.  Thanks so much to all the women who came, listened and talked together – and were part of the whole thing, as well as part of a worldwide movement of women, speaking out, encouraging and supporting other women – well done everyone!
